Long-Empty Land by NRG Eyeing New Relationship Prospects Decades After Steakhouse Abandonment

9330 Main St., NRG, Houston, 77025

9330 Main St., NRG, Houston, 77025Here’s a recent view from the Buffalo Spdwy. side of the long-vacant 12 acre property at 9330 Main St., now listed as under contract by broker HFF.  The land — a set of parcels outlined in the above aerial photo from HFF listing flier — appears to have never held much in the way of built structures, save for the section at 9403 Buffalo Spdwy. (which sported a branch of Oklahoma-rooted Lebanese steakhouse Jamil’s in the 1970s).

A reader notes that someone has been at work on what appears to be soil testing for the site, which faces Main between the new Holiday Inn Express & Suites and the Public Storage facility, with Prime Storage across the street. The Buffalo Spdwy. frontage is flanked by  some David Weekley homes to the south, and the Pemberton Park townhomes to the north (visible on the left below:)

Across Buffalo Spdwy. is the 1st Stop Food Mart at the corner with Durhill Dr.:

  • Isnt this tract owned by some sheikh somewhere? Rumor has it going to old people apartments.

  • I’ve wondered why this chunk of land has remained undeveloped: inside the Loop, close to NRG, and the Buffalo Speedway side fits in nicely with the residential neighborhood.
    Put a high fence on the Main Street side and fill it up with high-end townhomes, if that floats your boat. City would love the added tax revenue for potholes.

  • Speaking of potholes, that stretch of Buffalo Speedway is, well, unspeakable. Maybe more development will spur repairs.

  • @Bocepheus Rumor is correct, senior living apartments.
